Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an illness characterized by prolonged, debilitating fatigue and a characteristic group of accompanying symptoms, particularly problems with memory and concentration, unrefreshing sleep, muscle and joint pain, headache and recurrent sore throat. It is marked by a dramatic difference in pre- and post-illness activity level and stamina.
CFS shares various symptoms with many illnesses, including fibromyalgia, lupus, Lyme disease, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, untreated hypothyroidism, chronic hepatitis and depression.
